Opening Day

by Polecat Rodeo



she feels it in her bones on a summer day
the winter bird will soon pass our way
I see it in her eyes what words can’t say
I promise I won’t die on opening day

let’s sit my friend and scan the sky
our quarry is afoot, I’m content to let them lie
I wish this moment never goes away
I’m sitting with you on opening day

I know the years won’t let go of you
these precious moments it seems but few
don’t you worry, she seemed to say
I promise I won’t die on opening day

now she waits at her place by the fire
waiting for tales from her favorite liar
she never judges what I have to say
she says I won’t die on opening day
